This paper presents the results of experimental research on the evolution of the set of high strength and electrical properties of wires from Cu-(3-15 wt.%)Ag alloys. Continuous melting and casting process of rods and the drawing process of wires using pre- and inter-operation of multi-stage heat treatments in order to improve the mechanical (UTS=900-1630 MPa) and electrical (63-92 % IACS) properties of circular and profiled cross-section wires has been presented. Metallographic analysis for casts, drawn wires and wires after heat treatments performed with the use of SEM and TEM microscopy were presented. Effect of different kind of microstructure and the value of deformation on electrical conductivity of the wires during low temperature tests were presented. Model calculations and a construction of prototype the electromagnet coils made of Cu-Ag alloys wires (total true strain 6) and the results of the tests carried out at cryogenic temperature (77K) has been also shown.
